The Bonnet Cleaning Of Carpets

Bonnet Cleaning ordinarily refers to utilizing a 175rpm Floor machine . The Cotton Bonnet is actually where Bonnet Cleaning gets it’s name. There have been a couple of large national franchise of carpet cleaners that have based their system on Bonnet cleaning with a 175 rpm machine.

How the Cimex Carpet Machine Works

The Cimex is an unusual twist on the rotating head cleaner. It has three small heads that counter rotate to the direction of the main disk. It seems to be a regular 175 rpm floor buffer but the agitation of the carpet is not the same. This unit is very popular for encaping commercial carpet

Ocsillating Pad (OP) Carpet cleaning

The Op machines look nearly the same as the 175 rpm floor buffer but has a completely different motion. The base of the unit vibrates and rapidly rotates in little small circles and rotates in a large circle also. It is very deceptive as to how much work it is doing. It works very well on some carpeting and rugs like Berbers and commercial carpet.

What is a Wickback?

Wick backs are a problem with most rugs and carpets, especially with carpets that are glued down. Particularly with Hwe you can sometimes clean a carpet and the stain will seem to be gone. As the carpet dries the stain will possibly come back. What is happening is the moisture in the carpet is wicking up the carpet fiber and bringing the stain back up the fiber and into view. Bonnet Cleaning, Encapsulating, and OP methods rarely have wicking problems.

Pet Troubles with Carpet

Normally with smaller Pet Urine problems you can saturate the problem area with close to the same quantity of Urine neutralizer, allow soak around twenty minutes and then extract. If an area has been severely abused by a pet repeatedly the pad and sub floor may be contaminated. The solution for this usually you should pull up the carpet, put in new pad, paint the subfloor using a special sealer. Often you will have to replace the carpet.

Encapsulated Cleaning There are new cleaning solutions available that are referred to as Encapsulating. What these cleaning solutions do is break the dirt’s bond with the rug fibers and dry to a flake. This flake is then easy to separate from the carpet fiber with regular vacuuming. These formulas were developed for the Vlm carpet cleaners but commonly function properly utilizing Hot Water Extracting also.

Why you should Vacuum More Often.

Carpeting is a great air filtration system for your home. Dust particles and dirt will naturally be trapped in the carpet fibers. Regular vacuuming will eliminate a lot of this dirt. Some of this dust will drop through the carpeting and not come back up. Have you ever observed how you do not find the dust bunnies floating around on a carpeted floor but you will have them after a day or two with you have hard surface floors. The carpet absorbs dust and in case you do not vacuum often it will end up in the carpet.

What is most beneficial aspect in Rug cleaning?

The five most important stages to cleaning a carpet. Prespray, dwell time, agitation, heat, the cleaning technician. In my opinion if the equipment is running correctly and the tech is educated on how to work his equipment the most essential element in getting your carpeting clean is the Technician.

20% of Dirt is Sticky

A number of reports have found that approximately 20% of the dirt in most carpets and rugs is sticky and will attach to the actual carpet fibers making it look dirty. The additional 80% is dry and will usually come up simply by vacuuming as long as it is still on top of the carpeting. If the dry dirt has been trampled to the bottom of the carpet you will not have the ability to get it out of the carpet. You cannot get adequate airflow to get dry dirt from the bottom of the carpeting back up through the top fiber layer. What carpet cleaners are trying to clean is the 20% of the sticky dirt that sticks to the fibers and changes the color of the carpet.
